so i was downtown with no money and my American gladiators lunchbox with no idea what to do. i know my mom told me not to talk to strangers but i think i had to. i had to make sure i only talked to the most honest looking adult i could find.
i talked to an older guy who told me he had candy in his van. his van had no windows but i figured since he had candy he was probably really honest. he told me i had to sit in the back and put rope on my legs so i did. i think the rope was some sort of seat belt. the man did have some candy but he didnt ask me where i lived…he just started driving which was strange. i wasnt paying much attention tho.
we were going pretty fast i think and i heard sirens and everything. next thing that i kno two police men (just like you see in the movies) were opening the back door to let me out. i told them the man was just taking me home and that i was to young to go to jail. the police officers put me in the squad car and took me home.
it was a good thing my mom was home when we got there. i thought she would cry or faints seeing me pull up in a police car for the third time this year but the police told her everything that happened. after the police dropped me off and explained everything that happened my mom started crying. im really not sure why… i think she might be on her period.
that night we watched the news together and saw the candy man on the news. im starting to think that i shouldnt have eaten that candy….. i should have held out for money or something of more value.
